Guys I'm curious about your input.  After being at a spa for a while - Korean Jumjibang (spelling?) I find that it can get a little boring.  Sometimes I strike up conversation with another guy. …Continue

Planning to be at Spa World in Centerville, VA Monday.  Let me know if any of you guys will be in the area.

I used to go to Dillon's years ago when I lived closer. It was a great place, very nude friendly. I suspect the place hasn't changed much since I last went.

Their website 

http://www.dillonsrussiansteambath.com/index.php

shows pictures that seem to me look like the place has been updated and modernized quite a bit since I was last there. That suggests to me that things are going well for them and the business is successful.

Have a great time there. Wish I could join you.

Has anyone been to Dillon's Russian Steam Bath in the Boston area.  I'm visiting this week and might have a chance to go this Thursday night.  I can't find much about it though.

I've been to King Spa in Dallas. I hear Spa Castle is pretty great too. Wish I could get a soak and sauna right now.
